The New York Yankees tie the Detroit Tigers 1-1 in ten innings

The New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers played to a 1-1 tie in ten innings this afternoon. Michael Pineda started for the Yankees and pitched well. He went five innings which was the deepest he has gone into a game all spring. Mariano Rivera, Dave Robertson and Rafael Soriano all pitched a good inning. The Yankees also used pretty much their regular lineup. They only managed five hits but Derek Jeter did have a leadoff homerun. 
Pineda pitched five innings and gave up five hits and one run. He walked two and struck out four. Rivera pitched an inning giving up his first hit of the spring. Soriano pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout, Robertson pitched an inning giving up a hit and striking out one and Manny Delcarmen made his first appearance of the spring. Delcarmen pitched an inning giving up a hit and Clay Rapada pitched an inning giving up a hit and striking out one.

Jeter had two hits and an RBI, Curtis Granderson drew two walks and Alex Rodriguez drew a walk. Rodriguez left the game early after getting nailed in the ribs with a pitch. Mark Teixeira had a hit and a walk, Russell Martin drew a walk and Andruw Jones had a hit. Eduardo Nunez had a hit and Brett Gardner drew a walk.

Teixeira, Nunez and Jeter each had a double. Jeter had a homerun. The Yankees were 0-10 with runners in scoring position and they left 10 men on base. Granderson was caught stealing and Gardner, Wise and Nix all had an outfield assist. The Yankees will have a day off on Monday and then return to action on Tuesday. The exhibition schedule is winding down now as the season will begin a week from Friday in Tampa against the Rays. The Yankees will play two exhibition games in Miami at the new Marlins stadium and then the last two exhibition games in Port St. Lucie against the Mets before beginning the season.
